Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★★

ARMY OF THE DEAD is a lot of fun, but even though it’s preposterous it certainly isn’t brain dead, Snyder definitely has a lot of things on his mind. There’s allusions overt and subtle to things like immigration and the Police State, but it’s used to add texture to his worldbuilding rather than make a definitive political statement and I think it all works to the film’s benefit (one might decry the inclusion of former Press Secretary Sean Spicer in a guest role, but he is also being directly challenged by another character that essentially rebukes the real world political situation he aided & abetted.) The biggest thing of all to appreciate is how genuinely *weird* it can get. More films need this level of unabashed personality
